The Project Canaan Children (PCC) program provides a safe haven for orphans and vulnerable children. Children's homes and schools have been and will continue to be built to provide for the ever-growing number of orphans being left in the wake of the AIDS pandemic.
This will provide them a chance to live and grow as well as be educated to help break the cycle of ignorance and poverty in their generation. As of April 2019, we have 220+ abandoned/orphaned children living at Project Canaan. We receive a new baby on average every 10 days. If this trend continues we will have 260 children living on Project Canaan by 2020!

Education is important to our goal of helping the people of eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) break the cycle of poverty.
